Birdon’s core capabilities and access to commercial markets have opened up highly successful opportunities in the engineering and contracting services space.
This includes mid-life refurbishment and re-sales, as well as disposal of maritime and defence assets, in both the commercial and government sectors. In the case of disposal, Birdon provides fully integrated disposal service for the management of assets at end of lifecycle for assets up to 10,000 tonnes.
Key projects in this area include the preparation and scuttling of ex-HMAS Canberra as an artificial reef, disposal of the Fremantle Class patrol boats and secure disposal of the RAAF’s iconic F-111 fleet.
In the commercial space, Birdon is always on the look out for quality vessels, barges and other marine assets for refurbishment and life extension for onward sale within the commercial marine sector.
Birdon’s Engineering and Contracting Services Division also manages operations contracts such as the RMS’s Northern Region Vehicular Ferries.

• ISO 9001:2008 – Quality Management Systems;
